Obituary - Mrs. Isaac Buck

Mrs. Isaac Buck died at her home near Hale on Sunday, Jan. 15, 1922, aged 78 years, 10 months and 23 days. Mrs. Buck was stricken with paralysis two years ago last September and since that time had been unable to walk. Her lat illness was of short duration. She was taken sick Wednesday and passed peacefully away Sunday afternoon at 4:00 o'clock, sweetly trusting in a just God and in a loving Heavenly Father.

Louisa Rosetta Barber was born at McGee's corners, New York, Feb 23, 1843, and came to Genesee County Michigan with her parents when 8 years old. She was married to Isaac Buck of Linden, Genesee County on Nov. 7, 1861 and they resided there until they came to Iosco County in 1885.

She was baptized into the Baptist Church at Linden when she was 14 years old and united with the Baptist Church of Plainfield when it was organized in 1889, of which she has always been a consistent member. Until disease made it impossible she was a very active in all departments of the church work.

Mrs. Buck was the mother of three children, Henry, Frank, and Ida. Henry, having died ten year ago, the other two children, Frank and Ida are left to mourn her loss, together with one sister, Mrs. G. W. Teed, fourteen grandchildren, and eight great grandchildren, besides a host of friends will greatly miss her.

She was buried Wednesday from the Hale Baptist church, Rev Joshua Roberts officiating. Burial was made in the Plainfield cemetery. The beautiful flowers, the large number of sorrowing friends all testified to the esteem in which she was held in the neighborhood. Relatives present from a distance were: Mrs. Edgar Peterson and little daughter, Lucille of Clare Mich, and Mrs. H. Fisher of Ogemaw County.

The Barbers migrated from Seneca Falls, New York to Linden, Michigan around 1851, Later living in Ionia County. The original Alvin Buck farm in Linden was 40 acres west of North Bridge Street and north of E. Ralston Rd. Another 40 acres was purchased south of E. Ralston Rd and east of North Bridge Street, sided by the old railroad tracks. This is probably where Isaac and Louisa lived until they moved to Hale in 1885. At that time they stayed with Charles Graves for the first winter. In the spring they built a cabin and homesteaded adjacent to the farm of Charles Graves.
